TILT! Reset the Game

The internet with its embedded social media might be the best virus that’s ever been imagined to corrupt all of humanity into wackos and thoughtless people. This is the moment the game is tilted, and at some point, the only way to continue civilization will be to reset it entirely:

Moms are asking their infants for permission to pick them up — in order to combat ‘rape culture’
New moms on Instagram have launched a new trend to combat “rape culture”: They are asking their infants for permission before picking them up.

According to Heat Street, the trend began last week after Nisha Moodley, mother of 6-month-old Raven, made an Instagram post featuring a selfie with her son and an explanation of her new parenting style, complete with a “endrapeculture” hashtag. Moodley claimed she can “feel for his ‘yes’” after she asks to hoist him up:

Since the moment he was born, we’ve always asked before we pick him up. I always feel for his “yes”. Why? Because we want him to know that his body is his, and that others’ bodies are theirs, and no one gets to make choices about someone else’s body. #lessonsinsovereignty #bornfree #endrapeculture Sidenote [sic]: If you ever want to hold someone else’s baby, my suggestion is to ask the parent, then ask the kid. It always touches my heart when someone takes a moment to connect with him and says “Can I hold you, dude?”

What kind of fakakta nonsense is this fresh stupidity? It’s the kind that can only come as a result of our Modernity. Nothing else could have convinced human beings that babies need to know that their bodies are theirs. Who the hell else’s body is it, and how is the baby supposed to understand the mom’s self-absorbed nonsense, complete with hashtags? It doesn’t. The baby doesn’t care. The baby wants to be held. Common sense is so rare, it’s a super power now.

The modern feminist is dreaming. She is making up nonsense. Because she has it so good, has access to everything that she could ever want here in the West, with no threat of any real rape culture, an idiot phrase at best, at worst, and insult to the men who have tried this feminism game for the last few decades, only to find that it has turned the women who begged for it mad as hatters, deciding that a baby needs to be respected as an individual and thus requires permission to be held by its mother, something that baby craves.

Rape culture, if such a stupid phrase can be used, exists in places that are decidedly not America nor the West in general. The women who are held down do not live in these 50 states, they live in countries and tribal nations where the woman is not simply held down, she is considered unclean and without value, aside from providing heirs. Feminists, in their madness, want to bring women like this and their culture into the West, a tone-deaf notion, at best.

Every where they look, the feminist sees oppression. Her mind is ginned up, twisting and turning on itself; a whirling vortex of diametrically opposing thoughts and ideas, none of which she can resolve without blaming something else. Everything is a slight, everything an insult. All the world hates women as far as she’s concerned, and by God, she’ll prattle on until this changes. And when something does change for what she believes to be the betterment of women’s lives, she finds something within minutes that takes the place of the last perceived problem, and she goes on another schoolmarm outrage fest, admonishing everyone (men) to ‘do better.’ It’s driven feminists mad, clearly.

“I don’t ever want my son to be a sexual perpetrator or the victim of one, and the best thing I can do is honor his choices about his own body,” Moodley told Yahoo Beauty. “I also want him to pay attention to his instincts, and forcing physical touch could interfere with that.”

Moodley claimed that Raven will sometimes reject her when asked permission.

“There have been times where Raven has responded by reaching his arms out for a hug or turning his head or body away,” she said.

This is moonbattery nuts. This is a baby. It craves attention and love. Instead of that, these women want to force their own notions of ‘fairness’ and whose body belongs to whom, complicating further a relationship that should be as simple as Mother to Baby.

Modernity has flipped humanity onto itself, taking thousands of years of human history and dismissing it like so much garbage, since those people ‘back then’ weren’t ‘enlightened’ like we are now. What is sane is hated now, and what is insane is ‘liked’ enough times that magazines will swipe up these nuts and gush over them with interviews. We were once sane.

Now we ask babies permission to pick them up.

You Sick of it Yet?

You are a Trump supporter. Or, perhaps you voted for him because you could not stomach Hillary Clinton. Either way, it looks as though you may find yourself in actual crosshairs. Never mind the New York Times and their bull crap about Sarah Palin, you stand the very real chance of ending up in very real crosshairs from a very real rifle.

Our news media is beyond traitorous. Beyond sedition. They have all but glorified this shooting. News media has come up with excuse after excuse, none of them meeting any sort of logical criteria as to why this fool went out and shot up Republicans.

On Twitter, leftists have all but glorified this shooting. There have been tweets comparing Republicans to Nazis, and suggesting that killing a Nazi is justified, just like killing a Republican. Is this normal or sane behavior? Without a doubt, it is not. This is the behavior of unhinged, insane, politically obsessed, self-righteous, solipsistic morons. I cannot stand any justification for it. None. There is no justification for such insanity. Trump did not do it. Even Obama did not do it. This is the result of a nation that has gone off the rails. A nation that has lost itself. A nation that has lost its core values. A nation full of selfie loving, self-obsessed, spoiled brats that has no inclination of the blood that was spilled to give them all of their conveniences. This is a nation full of people on the left and in many other situations, who believe that their rights overwrite everyone else’s rights.

Their little YouTube videos, Instagram videos, and Vine videos, have convinced them that they are stars, and that their opinion actually matters in the grand scheme of things. Social media, being the virus that it is, has convinced us in America that everything we say has validity. It does not. In the grand scheme of things, our opinion matters nothing. But since we have all been fooled, there is now no stopping what is coming for us.

America’s run is over. If nothing else signifies it it is this shooting. Nothing could ever be the same as it was. The division in this nation is too great to bridge. The unhinged hysteria has taken on a life of its own.

No matter what Trump does, the outcome according to our media, will be destruction. And thanks to social media, every fool with a Twitter or Facebook account can opine on this fact.

Without any deep research, without any qualifications whatsoever, everyone in this nation can get on their social media account and convince others to believe the nonsense news, the traitorous attempts by our news media to constantly make news rather than report it.

Egalitarianism is death to a civilization. The crowd, the herd, is mad as a Hatter. It has no wisdom. It has no intelligence. The herd merely follows the rest of the herd. Whether right or wrong, the herd’s concern is protection. The herd is a coward. The hivemind is a coward. The only concern for the hivemind is to make certain that it is protected, no matter the outcome. This is a sure path to destruction. And it isn’t as though we have not been warned throughout history.

But history does not matter to this insane Modernity. All that matters now is our comforts. Our conveniences. Our ‘rights.’ But our rights mean nothing. This is obvious as time progresses. Our rights amount to squashing the rights of others, little else. What matters in a civilization is some sort of ethical and ethnic unity. And we have no such thing anymore. Egalitarianism has led to our problem right now. The simple fact is, most humans in any civilization have no wisdom as to keeping that civilization together. Most humans in any situation are concerned about their rights. And ‘rights’ do not cement a civilization.

Since we desire our rights and our conveniences above all else, America continues to allow a treasonous media to create news rather than report it, to vilify anyone they disagree with, and to worship anyone, no matter how heinous, they believe is on their side. We keep tuning our TVs into them, and going to their websites, driving the revenue that they need in order to continue their treasonous stance. We are completely unwilling to do what is necessary to correct the problem, thus we are doomed. Utterly doomed.

Though the violence and the talk of violence is reverberating from the left, it is America itself that is to blame. We will not rise up and do what is necessary because we are too comfortable. It doesn’t matter how many opeds are written about these things, nothing will change until America is ready to get off its fat ass and change it. We have become cowards, unable to face a real problem, and stand up to it. At this stage of the game, it is unlikely that we will.

The Resistance Truly is Futile. Dangerous, but Futile.

For all the members of ‘The Resistance,’ this self-deluded group with no solidarity other than their profound hatred of The Great and Horrible Orange one, the saying, ‘discretion is the better part of valor’ has no meaning for them. For The Resistance, obsession is the better part of valor.

A never-ending onslaught of nonsense about Trump, so tone-deaf and obsessed that The Resistance (which makes me chuckle anytime I type it) doesn’t realize, nor could their fever dream be interrupted to see the truth, which is that no one outside The Resistance gives a flat damn about The Resistance. Most of us wonder why they don’t just go fly a kite, an exercise that would prove to be 1) more useful than The Resistance 2) a hell of a lot more enjoyable for both them and us. Hell, I’d actually join one of them on such an exercise, until I noted that the kite was shaped like Trump and was outfitted with a lightning rod.

For some highlights of their obsession, we go to the headlines, from various sources—and only just a few are needed:

  • Stephen Colbert Rips Apart Donald Trump’s ‘Presidential’ Statement
  • Here’s How J.K. Rowling Wants To Protest Donald Trump’s UK State Visit
  • Donald Trump Has Already Cemented His Pathetic Legacy
  • Scott Pruitt (Sort Of) Answers Whether Trump Believes In Climate Change
  • Terrorists Want People Afraid. Trump’s Alarmist Tweets Spark More Fear.
  • Dems lose appetite for deal with Trump on infrastructure
  • Four top law firms turned down requests to represent Trump
  • As Trump lashes out, Republicans grow uneasy
  • Vet Trump’s tweets? Aides say “LMFAO”
  • London mayor: Cancel Trump’s state visit
  • What Trump really fears
  • Republican lawmakers wonder when it’s time to ditch Trump
  • Kids Are Quoting Trump To Bully Their Classmates And Teachers Don’t Know What To Do About It

Years ago, I stopped reading Breitbart and some other sites on the right due to their Obama Derangement Syndromes, but what I’ve seen from The Resistance has been a pure plague o’ madness, the sort of behavior that has connotations of far-deeper rooted issues. To put it mildly, these people are nuts. Who can take this ‘resistance’ seriously as a force for good, aside from The Resistance itself?

No one.

The Resistance, however, is in love with itself for doing what it considers the Right and Only True Thing: get rid of Trump at all costs. Even got their own website. They’re all over the TV, movies, TV Movies, TV Movie Award shows, Hollywood Award shows, Hollywood; they’re all over YouTube and websites like CNN, HuffPo, a whole gaggle of places they have to vent and lay out the steamy, smelly nonsense being spewed. The Resistance never shuts up. This, in their minds, I’ve read from more than one, uh, ‘Resistor,’ gives them the belief that they are without question Moral and Right in their resistance. But it’s just the herd mentality giving them false comfort. The Resistance believes that it has the power to change society, and in one very real way, it does: it has the same power as any other herd: destruction. Running roughshod over everything, The Resistance is more akin to a pack of panicked wildebeests than anything to take seriously on an intellectual level.

(I’m all for moving out of the way of the herd, mind you, but not engaging it rationally. Failing to do the first and failing to use discretion for the latter can both get you killed)

Though their minds have gone to where there be dragons, their destructive instincts and capabilities are formidable. The Resistance is willing to tear it all down in order to be rid of the Orange Devil. Relationships, businesses, governments, traditions, law, time-honored principles—there are Molotov Cocktails in their eyes should his name be mentioned. I take their destructive desires and capabilities serious, but it’s impossible to take The Resistance, in all its temper-tantrum fury and futility, seriously as any sort of force that desires to do good and right things.

It’s a mob. A herd. One, big gaggle of panicked people. Part of the herd’s own panic and rage lies in how futile the efforts of The Resistance truly are.

Have at it, Children

These cities would do the rest of the world a lot of good by driving themselves into oblivion.

Representatives of American cities, states and companies are preparing to submit a plan to the United Nations pledging to meet the United States’ greenhouse gas emissions targets under the Paris climate accord, despite President Trump’s decision to withdraw from the agreement.

The unnamed group — which, so far, includes 30 mayors, three governors, more than 80 university presidents and more than 100 businesses — is negotiating with the United Nations to have its submission accepted alongside contributions to the Paris climate deal by other nations.

“We’re going to do everything America would have done if it had stayed committed,” Michael Bloomberg, the former New York City mayor who is coordinating the effort, said in an interview.

This is an excellent move on the part of these politicians. Commit to the Religion of the Day with blind faith and vigor, childish emotions, and the hatred of their new Great and Orange Satan. They should stand together as they sit at home and tweet. It will be pleasant to watch them tie themselves in knots, seeking out the validation of their peers, stoking their faith each day with one another so that they should not stray. Let them serve their god with fealty and devotion, offering their money, time, lives, and souls to the planet.

Their Vicars will grow rich. The control will be merciless. A Theocracy without a living Theos will be nothing but a modern nightmare. The ‘Internet of Things’ will watch the every move of the acolytes of Climate Warming Change God. Control will be merciless, efficient, and never-ending.

To what purpose? Wealth redistribution? Actually lowering the temperature of the Earth? Will Gaia be pleased by their efforts and grant them gifts? Who cares.

It was unclear how, exactly, that submission to the United Nations would take place. Christiana Figueres, a former top United Nations climate official, said there was currently no formal mechanism for entities that were not countries to be full parties to the Paris accord.

Ms. Figueres, who described the Trump administration’s decision to withdraw as a “vacuous political melodrama,” said the American government was required to continue reporting its emissions to the United Nations because a formal withdrawal would not take place for several years.

vac·u·ous
adjective 
  1. having or showing a lack of thought or intelligence; mindless.

Following blindly along, being willing to hand out any sum of money for a ‘science’ that has never been settled, not even by the consensus that we’re told there is agreement on, falling precisely in line with the Program, with no end in sight, no real resolution anywhere, allowing politicians and money makers access to exorbitant sums of money with little oversight, and going along with a rabid herd that doesn’t grasp how reality works seems to me the real ‘vacuous political melodrama’ here. Having the chutzpah to back out of a bum deal, despite the loudest, most shrill cries of the Gaia worshipers and politicians seems anything but vacuous and more akin to leadership.

But if these cities deem it appropriate and good to shackle themselves to this religion and the bum deals it slaps them with constantly, then by all means, let us allow them their show of faith. And allow it to derail them. I’m all for it.

Welcome to Hell’s Trial Run

At the moment I am knee deep in writing the stories for Aeon, Volume II. But the events of the last few days prompted me to step out of that cocoon for a moment.

A nation full of children. A treasonous news media. A generation unaware of the most basic principles of life. Men who think themselves ‘allies’ with feminism. Aberrant behavior everywhere. Lockstep adherence to insane, leftist, failed, useless ideas that destroy civilizations. Godless, spirit-less, amoral, immoral, and sick culture runs over everyone roughshod, changing madness into normality.

Columbia, we fell for your charming words of inclusion and goodness. Liberty! We heard you chime out, time and again. Give us your poor, you said, your tired, you said. The die was already cast long before now: you are the Warden in the guise of a Saint.

You were the goddess of the Underworld. A light (enlightenment) giver. You were Usert, an earth goddess. You cultivated lands and fields. You fed the gods. Demeter and Ceres you were to Greece and Rome. You were the hidden goddess.

Who could know that you had not our liberty in mind but, rather, yet again we believed the lies of all the gods and goddesses who promised freedom through unity, inclusion, and enlightenment, and have found ourselves in prisons, the bars of which we built ourselves. The promise was the same as every tempter outside of God’s Order offers: To break the bonds of all we knew; to deny the rightful order of things; to seek out personal liberty, outside the context of personal faith; to throw off all shackles, once and for all.

To become gods of our own kind.

Republics fail. Without God, they fail faster. The West sees itself, indeed, First-world humanity all over the globe, sees itself as the chosen, the ones who merely wait to become Homo Luminous—mankind enlightened. As we have throughout time immemorial, we listened to lesser gods, ones who were not permitted to be worshiped and so instead rebelled, demanded fealty anyway, through blood and name. Their lies are our lies, passed down, generation to generation. Until modernity. When America sought to cast off so much of previous tradition, a new nation, a Republic was created. One that would be the City on a Hill. But a City on a Hill is posed precariously to fall. The High Places are meant for gods, not mortals, and not once since Nimrod became a mighty man against God, have we, nor will we ever, achieve godhood through the machinations of the things we see as benefactors that in truth seek nothing but our destruction.

The traditions cast off began the rebellion, and indeed it was designed so from the start. This new world would be a trap. Novus ordo seclorum we would be, but the ages are proving this to be what it always has been: a lie.

Now our borders are filled to the brim with useless people. Those who would rather destroy than create. Thankless, spoiled people that, though each and every day is a prison of our own making, insist they are free. Zombies, imprisoned by phones and black mirrors of technology, swayed by any stupidity that the wind blows toward them. Our Modernity, so protective and proud of it as we are, is Hell as a trial run. The ability to think is gone from most, the ability to speak plainly, without guile and newspeake, is gone from most. The most basic understanding of life, human behavior, right and wrong–gone from most in today’s Modernity. We are spoiled children now who know which sister is having sex with which brother in which orgy on Game of Thrones but haven’t a clue how any of the things we all use and take for granted came to be, the sacrifices that were made, not to mention being able to appreciate the things we have.

Modernity has turned humanity into monsters. As it always warned us that it would. We are then, as monsters, placed into the only suitable places that even rebellious, lesser gods have the wisdom to understand that we belong: within prisons, spiritual, mental, financial, and cultural. We are tagged, tracked, targeted, and lied to moment to moment. Our prison guards rattle our cages constantly, no content with seeing us in prison but, rather, enjoying the spectacle of how easily trained the human is when that human has no True God in his heart. Our future is not merely grim, it is coming to a close.

Our future can be found in our past, and our past is so full of the warnings of what would happen to us if we took this path again that it all but cries out to be heard, and we silence it, ignore it, see it as arcane, that of people who were less enlightened, less humane; whatever. Our Hubris is beyond comprehension. This is no surprise, when we know where the lies came from, that they are as old as time, and that the lesser gods that easily trapped us with our own pride have a far better understanding of human weakness than humanity ever will, outside of the True God.

Our lesser gods promise us peace, prosperity, and comfort. But they have no such power to give. And so they lie with these promises, as they always have, to every culture. The patterns left by their destruction throughout all the nations that God set them up to rule, only to watch them give into corruption, are irrefutable. When some god through pabulum and plattitudes promises that it comes in peace to offer mankind unity on this earth, trouble awaits.

Yet One God tells us He came not to bring peace, but a sword, and that to follow Him would not lead to godhood on this earth, but to troubles. A long term plan that seeks to move humanity toward an actual, next step in our existence. Not some silly, evolutionary notion of Homo Luminous, but something far better, eternal, and full of Goodness we can’t fathom.

As per usual, humanity listens to the wrong promises. And so we have our trial run of Hell which we call Modernity, where we believe ourselves to be free while languishing away in the prisons of our own making.

What is Required to Deal With the Horrible Entropy and Chaos of Human Sin: Part One

What is sin? For myself, following the Biblical law, sin is missing the mark of God’s holiness. Seems nebulous and vast. An abyss of its own; a place where one can look down and see an endless darkness because, quite frankly, holiness is something no man attains while alive on this earth. Never will you find me kissing the ring on the finger of a holy man for that ‘holy’ man is an affront to the true holiness of God, by dint of the claim of his mantle. There’s a difference in being God’s man and a so-called holy man. There is no such thing as the latter on this earth. I care not about semantics here.

Since the transgressions of humanity know no bounds, then sin is, in fact, an abyss that can swallow us whole in every facet: mentally, spiritually, and physically. One doesn’t need to be a man of faith to understand what happens when we willingly give into the desires that seek to drag us away from the immutable Laws of the Universe, patterns set in motion at the beginning of that universe.

But without faith, what are we to do? Well, there’s always sheer willpower. But sheer willpower wanes and ebbs. That’s whether one has faith or not. Many attempt to hold the religious hostage by reminding them that, hey, even with your God, you still sin! There’s no reason to argue this one back; it is without question true.

What God, specifically Christ, provides, is the only method with which sin can be dealt with so that it does not drag our very souls into the underworld, where prison and nothing more awaits us. Jesus Saves. How many times have you read it? Heard it? Is it true? What does He save us from?

He saves us from ourselves, our natural tendency to run, break the rules, break the laws of the universe; our natural inclination to follow our desires and passions above all else toward self-destruction. He saves us from the spiritual forces in the universe that seek to exacerbate those tendencies; the Dark Things that have no choice but to face an Eternal Underworld, thus they want us with them; a hatred seethes within them because we have access to what they do not: the possibility of seeing the Beloved God without the anger and judgment they will face.

He alone controls the entropy of sin. He alone can stop it. You’ve likely heard the story many times of how He did this: He became sin and through the triumph of the Cross and Resurrection, proved to be the only One who could satisfy God’s requirements to purchase back all those who did, have, and ever will sin. If this seems trite to you, I don’t blame you, as American Christianity has so watered this down as to be almost meaningless to so many, lost of any depth and value, and how it correlates with all we know about this universe we inhabit. I dare you right now to dig deeper. Forget about any church people who turned your stomach. They mean nothing. Dig into it, see what you find. The Word, I promise you, never comes back without value and wisdom.

****

And so as I watch the madness in the world unfold, I see the mirror of myself; my own ugliness and sin, my own desires to break free of His yoke at every turn, at every juncture. I’ve seen my excuses for my bad behavior. I’ve seen the entropy of sin that crept into my life over time. There have been moments of clarity so sharp that it almost broke me to see the truth.

So I turn to Him.

But that’s not the end, nor the beginning. For whom much is given, much is required. If Christ offers the only method with which to weed out and destroy that entropy and chaos in our lives we so glibly call ‘sin,’ then can I just pop into church on Sunday morning, sing a few hymns while thinking about Arby’s, go my merry way, and gain the gifts He offers?

What an insult to this gift. This God. I’ve lost count of the times I’ve insulted Him Myself. I don’t want to know. The weight might crush me.

I knew that as I began to see the depth of my own chaotic, entropy-mongering sins over the last few months that serious changes had to be made. “Lord, hear my prayer as a sinner,” was not going to be enough. After all, I’d been saying that for decades. I would ask Him to hear me constantly, with never the wherewithal to stop and listen.

I sought out mental clarity some months ago. I began removing things in my life that distracted me. Though I have not owned a TV in years, like any human, I simply found new ways to distract myself. One by one, I began to weed them out. For some time, there was little change. God did not waltz in a couple of weeks later and tell me how proud of me He was. I had to keep at it.

The Bible tells us to meditate on the Word of God. So does nearly every pastor who steps up behind the pulpit. We glibly dance the words off our tongues as though we understand them. I know that I did not. I’ve read the Bible, studied it, watched thousands of hours of lectures from brilliant men about it; I’ve read millions of words of commentary. This is all beneficial and I highly recommend it. But meditating? No, I was not doing that. More often than not, my Biblical studies were intellectual. Again, not bad, as my own Bible also tells me to study and show up approved by God.

Still, I remember one day I pulled this verse up, some two months back:

Joshua 1:9Names of God Bible (NOG)

“I have commanded you, ‘Be strong and courageous! Don’t tremble or be terrified, because Yahweh your Elohim is with you wherever you go.’”

 

I then proceeded to say it over and over in my head. For over an hour, I read it, re-read it. I sought out no commentary. I just pondered it. I talked to God about it. I asked Him what it meant. I meditated (do not confuse this with any Eastern form of meditation). I would not let the verse, the idea, the depth of what God is saying go until something clicked. And something did, but the next day, not within the time that I took with no distractions to meditate on it. Softly, God granted me the tidbit of wisdom I sought from the verse. After all:

James 1:5Names of God Bible (NOG)

If any of you needs wisdom to know what you should do, you should ask God, and he will give it to you. God is generous to everyone and doesn’t find fault with them.

****

I do not spend every single night meditating as I should. I am still new at this, which is almost shameful, considering my faith in Christ spans 34 years. But our world of comforts and distractions was a far better plan by the Dark Forces that rain down chaos and entropy on us that we really understand, for we are no programmed to interrupt stillness, to shun silence, and to ‘feel good about ourselves,’ constantly. Did I sin today? Well were I to follow the Christianity of today, then I merely need to buck up, pat myself on the back, and know that God loves me.

And my does He! But it is not in comfort and entertainment that we find out the depth of this love. It is when we sit down, turn everything off, and force the unthinkable upon ourselves: seeking out our ugliness, desiring to understand and eradicate it.

This is not legalism, for ‘trying harder’ not to sin will do us no good. We cannot ‘try harder,’ and succeed. To whom much is given, much is required, and the requirement to get out from under the whip of sin and its chaos and destruction is to do a lot more than turn the TV off at night for half and hour and dig out the ol’ Good Book.

I have found that silence is in order. Chaos really cannot abide silence. So for a while, my mind could not, as it was chaotic. There have also been moments of such clarity as to the depth of my own insults against my God that I serve that it overwhelmed me. But I continue to discover that each time I am overwhelmed, God steps in. I still feel as though I could crack under the weight of my failures, but He assures me that is not what He wants. Punishment is not His goal for His own. Admonishment and correction towards more contentment and a deeper understanding of His own laws, those of the universe, as well as how mankind functions, are the things that He desires.

More on this tomorrow…

Interview with Brett Stevens

I recently had the opportunity to interview Brett Stevens of Amerika.org (and many more outlets). I sent him a few questions and, when he returned the interview, I was as usual fascinated with his responses. As when we have discussions, not everything he says I agree with, including in this interview, yet I always find his insights interesting and deeply thought through. I hope you enjoy this interview as much as he and myself.

Brett, thank you for agreeing to this interview.

Thank you for sending it to me. I have read your blogs for years now and have appreciated the insights you have bestowed upon us, as well as the competent and yet not cynical music. I hope you keep it up for many years to come.

Let’s talk about metal. I grew up in a Fundamentalist Christian environment. Nearly every other week, the Christian school that I attended featured a video on the evils of rock and roll. Where I agreed (and still do) with them was that the inherent praise of casual sex and drug use was/is clearly damaging. What I never agreed with them on was that neither metal nor hard rock was precisely what they saw it as. Rather than any sort of invitation or, worse, invocation into any sort of Satanic nonsense, the lyrical content of the majority of the metal bands, to my ears, spurred warnings against truly Luciferian ideas such as conformity, globalism, the folly of trusting elected officials, et al. The true danger, to me, were always the soft pop artists, selling sex, drug us, and softened Paganism like weed. Digestible for the general public, bubble-gum programming at its finest. Having been on the forefront of the underground metal scene for decades, going all the way back to BBS, what are your thoughts here?

As usual, appearance differs from reality. In appearance, the conservatives are standing against decay by insisting that we all become good citizens of this robotic civilization. They want us to go get jobs, pay taxes, obey all the rules, and give way anytime someone from a less “privileged” environment wants something. This is why conservatives have failed. They are defending what is in reality quite evil, but in appearance is good. The reason they cannot separate the two is found in the ego; they like the appearance of good because it serves their own interests before those of the group, and so they make a good show of being “good” when in fact they are advocating intermediate steps to “evil.”

Metal is a rebellion against illusions and an inversion of the dichotomy between appearance and reality. It asserts reality in ways that appear terrifying, but are in fact more sane and pleasurable than what those in thrall to the false appearance can offer. Metal finds beauty in noise, darkness, death, evil and the apocalypse, and in doing so, reveals the lies at the heart of our society. Democracy is not good; it is a path to death. Socialism leads to bankruptcy. Being nice to people means that bad people get ahead while good people stick around to clean up. Being a good conservative means that you become a support structure for a dying civilization just so that you can claim you are doing the right thing.

They objected to heavy metal on the basis of its perceived extremes – drugs, sex and violence – but what they really objected to was the rebellion against the perceived intellectual authority of the people in power. Metal did not say to fight them literally, it said not to take them seriously, because they are appearance merchants and complacency shills and little else. This prompted a counter-attack. Metal has its extremes, but as you note, they are less dangerous than those in pop music, because for metal this hedonism is not at its core; these behaviors are incidental because metalheads tend to be partiers. For pop music, bohemianism is its message because it is a safe form of individualism that does not threaten the power structure of democracy and also keeps the proles busy when not at work.

Metal instead stood for a radical idea: realism, in the context of history. This meant that we were comparing ourselves not to last year, but to last millennia, and one five thousand years ago… under this high standard, our modern society appears as bankrupt, pointless and selfish as it is. This is an unforgivable sin according to those who want to be the powers that be.

If you want to know how metal thinks, look at the name of the first proto-metal band: Black Sabbath. Heavy metal inverts the rotten order of our society which is already inverted, and by doing so returns us to sanity by delivering us from any kind of trust in the corrupt institutions that make up our postmortem civilization.

To my mind, metal has never been licentious. It assigns physical pleasures to their place and redirects our attention toward goals which would have been comprehensible at the time of The Odyssey, but are now viewed with suspicion. Through its mythological and historical view, metal redirects us from The Now toward the eternal.

This puts metal in opposition to modernity. Modernity is based in individualism and, as a result, what is happening within the group at the present moment. The “heaviness” of metal demands we step outside the present, relax and contemplate the eternal.

In this way, it is both anti-modern and perennial music. It bonds us to reality instead of isolating us in worlds of our own composed of ego-drama. This is unacceptable to the powers that be, so they slander it with whatever is convenient, usually the accusation that it corrupts the youth – much as was used against Socrates.

Do the metal artists that informed your thinking decades ago still do so, and in what way?

My early thinking was informed by the forest, and then I spent a great deal of time with the classics, and after that, bands like Slayer and Hellhammer fit into what I had learned from classical literature and philosophy. Metal is a heavily Romantic movement, but like Romanticism, it is divided between the individualism of The Enlightenment™ and the realistic recognition that ancient Greece and Rome were great civilizations while our present one is in a holding pattern, subsidizing itself with the greatness of the past but unable to achieve any greatness on its own. In this way, metal fits right into the nexus of authors like William Burroughs, Friedrich Nietzsche, Aldous Huxley, William Gibson and Thomas Pynchon who write about the collapse of social order as a final culmination to this lack of direction in the West. In this way, metal still informs my thinking, because there is a continuity of thought.

Currently I still listen to a fair amount of metal, punk and synthpop music. This is interspersed with the majority of my listening, which is the cluster of genres generally called “classical music,” with focus on Baroque and Modernist types. The classics are still relevant because they are first and foremost powerful music, and they derive this power from being true to some aspect of the world around us, like any other great art. Most of the art around us is not true to the world at all, but reflects desires of the ego, and all pop music fits into this; that sort of listening is extremely transient for me and I am happy to escape the presence of such music. As the artist behind Merzbow, a collaborator of K.K. Null, once said, “If by noise you mean uncomfortable sound, then pop music is noise to me.” So the old classics from many genres join the new music I find as both truthful art and an escape from the wall of noise around us.

I believe that this next question will fit into the ideas here, so tell us how did Brave New World and The Perennial Philosophy by Huxley influence your own thoughts about this world of fake and virtual things that we inhabit in Modernity?

Huxley fit into what Plato had expressed: that what we think of as “reality” is in fact effect, not cause. Elsewhere there is a cause which has a larger informational footprint, which means that our world is not the dominant place with a supernatural aspect tacked on, but that there is an informational reality which encloses this physical one, despite the appearance of it having exactly the opposite case. Kant turned me on to this with the concept of the perceptual filter, namely that our brains assemble a reality that works for us in immediate concerns – the four Fs: fighting, food, fleeing and reproduction – but we have to climb out of Plato’s cave and rediscover what is actually true. Logically, our world cannot be the source of order and pattern and structure in the universe, therefore there is an undeniable “bigger” world out there that is the source of this one.

Where Huxley got interesting was that he expressed how the above – that our view of the world is inverted, since we assume that what is closest to us is the source of everything that can be, when in fact we are at the end of a causal chain and not its source – appears in both politics and philosophy. In philosophy, we end up with materialism; in politics, we end up with individualism, which is where individuals pursue their own desires and make a hell on earth as a result. The society he described in Brave New World is how empires fall; most people do not realize that he wrote that book in 1932, and blamed We The People for the downfall of the West, which so outraged Socialist George Orwell that he wrote his own book in 1948, exonerating We The People and blaming dictatorship instead. Orwell’s book made perfect postwar propaganda against both Hitler and Stalin, so it was selected to be a classic.

When one digs deeply into Huxley, one finds Perennialism at the core of everything he writes. The essence of Perennialism is a type of anti-fundamentalism: we recognize that there is one reality and many descriptions of it called religions, but that when placed in the hands of masters, most religions converge on the same approximate truth, which means that we can use this general idea – or a set of ideas, really – as the basis for metaphysical exploration, and thus escape any specific “tradition” into the idea of Tradition itself. This leads right into Evola and then straight back into Plato. Philosophy is sort of like a rollercoaster that way.

Recently, I watched as Mike Pence was roundly harassed on Twitter after pointing out how he and his wife try to maintain purity in their marriage. I could not help but think of Brave New World in this regard. We have truly reached the point in our history where our society is utterly flipped in terms of morality. Having spent decades tracking the path of humanity and philosophy, does this reversal of morality surprise you?

We live in inverted times. The ego, voracious as always, seeks to assert itself as the cause and goal of all that exists; this naturally clashes with reality, which is based on the interaction between objects for informational and not material objectives. Actual love and marriage require partial sacrifice of the self, much like love of race, country or God/gods does, and so these are taboo and anathema to the Left. The Left panics when these things arise because the Leftist argument is based on its way being superior, and so if someone else succeeds doing something un-Lefty, then Leftism is invalidated, and worst of all this happens in the eyes of Leftists. To Leftists, a man in love with his wife and trying to lead a moral life is thus a threat.

Does this surprise me? No: I have seen for decades now how the unmoored ego is like a cosmic black hole that sucks in everything around it, forbidding light from escaping. Individualism is the source of the mob (sometimes called herd or Crowd) because when selfish people join together, they use their numbers as force and do so in a formless, ahierarchical group for the express purpose of having no responsibility, accountability and skin in the game. Their goal is to use what others have for themselves. This is the paradox of Crowds; they seem like they are a group activity, but really, they are many self-centered people using each other as an attack vector on the good, normal, decent, healthy, beautiful, honest, reverent, natural, logical, actual/realistic (“true”) and thriving. The selfish ego does not want to adapt to external reality because it wants to be king alone, and that requires deprecating reality to second place as less important than the ego, a condition we call “solipsism.” In the grips of this insane pathology, there is no way the Left can do anything but what they do, which is act out an impulse to destroy while justifying it with platitudes about peace, love, unity, pacifism, tolerance, respect, universality and friendship. This is how they are, and it manifests exactly the same way in the French Revolution as in the Russian Revolution, and the crucifixion of Jesus Christ and execution of Socrates, just as in everyday events such as mass panics, trends, fads, manias and obsessions.

Pence just walked into their crosshairs by trying to be a decent fellow, and they hate him anyway because he dislikes homosexuality. I understand his concern; homosexuality, like promiscuity and other illogical sexual behaviors, is linked to perversion and its public appearance is not a good sign. The best way to handle it is a two-way type of tolerance where homosexuals except that heterosexuals are repulsed by homosexuality and never want to see it or hear of it, and heterosexuals accept that homosexuals are produced by nature – whether as genetic errors, as seems partially true from their higher mortality, or as a support staff without the burden of child-rearing – and so need a place, although not necessarily in the focus of the mainstream. The Left tries to legitimize homosexuality because they believe it is perversity and thus can be used as a weapon against normal sexuality.

This is tangential, but it makes sense to mention the concept of sexual economics here. Sex and love like any other market represent a competition, with some achieving the ideal and most others getting something not-quite-ideal and then rationalizing that as best they can. We know that the ideal is the nuclear family and undying love, which Pence seems to have or at least strive for, because it provides the most pleasure for the individual over the longest period of time. It also avoids the great misery of divorce, loneliness and emotional alienation. Pence naturally outrages those who have lost in the sexual economy. This is why the people criticizing him are generally obese, living in dingy city apartments, working do-nothing perpetual entry level jobs, covered in tattoos and blue hair, promiscuous and yet “unlucky in love” – funny how those two usually seem to pair up – a condition which they rationalize as ideal. If Pence has a happy marriage, that interrupts their ability to rationalize and makes them enraged, which is why they attack with shrill noises and gnashing of teeth. Leftists are Orcs and Goblins.

There is a way that seems right to a man, but the end is death. To me, I see this dark way as the most accessible. The ‘wide path,’ as it were, which leads us toward the Hive Mind that we see exhibited today all around us. But there is another way. One which leads to Truth rooted in Reality, rather than our human emotions and feelings. Each of us has the ability to discover this way on our own. It is without question that you have discovered it for yourself. How did you come to find this way that does not lead to spiritual death?

When explorers first came to America, they discovered that the Amerinds here – a mixed race population that is mostly Asian in origin, but seems to have early European and Semitic ancestors as well, which makes sense since these were the voyaging tribes of the pre-modern period – smoked Nicotiana Rustica, a primitive type of tobacco. In the way of Western men, they began to cultivate it, and quickly bred it into a more abundant, sweeter-tasting, less potent (most smokers want this and have always wanted this, just like most people secretly prefer 3.2% beer) variety known as Virginia tobacco. One day in the late 1860s, a farmer noticed that he had a Virginia plant that had changed to be more like the Rustica plants. It was stronger, less sweet, and more abundant. In other words, it was like the Rustica, but having taken advantage of the new traits of the Virginia tobacco. This new type of leaf, Burley, was referred to as “an atavism of Virginia” because it brought forth the old traits in a new form. I am an atavism of modern man, and always have been; I was wired this way, but after spending a number of hours in the forest long ago, came to realize that the world is composed of patterns that manifest in material instead of the other way around. This fundamental religiosity and militant realism carried me through early life intact because I always had belief in the possibility of goodness, pleasure, logic and intelligence; no one else believed in such old-fashioned or radical things.

The duality – realism and transcendentalism – continues in me. I see how the two are related but most will find this concept to be alien. They expect people to be religious, or in the vernacular reality-denying, or realist, which in the vernacular means materialist; they cannot accept that the two are the same thing and the vernacular is wrong: a realist sees the world as it is, and in a Darwinian sense attempts to adapt to it, but this is a reactive and not prescriptive path. Realism then requires we figure out not just the methods we use, but where we should direct ourselves, and to what we should aspire, which leads us to transcendentalism, which is essentially the task of understanding the pattern language and structure of nature, so that we figure out what it aspires to, and adapt to that. In transcendentalism, we find the hidden beauty of our reality, and can then aspire to that, but it also shows us that most people are thinking in an inverted way. Appearance is not reality, and is always a trap, because it is inverted through the presence of perspective: we perceive what is closest to us to be the origin of all, when in fact the opposite is true. That knowledge takes us from the wide path to the narrow path.

What did you see in the wilderness that brought to your perceptions the very real fact that all of life is based on patterns?

This is where esotericism comes into play: there was no single incident, nor is there any single aspect I can point to as an argument. Instead, it is a deepening. You start by seeing the woods as scary, an unknown with a will of its own, but then you start to see why things happen as they do. When there are eight bunny rabbits born to a litter, and you see them all survive except the weakest two, you realize that in order to have healthy bunnies, you have to be hard on rabbits, just like you are hard on yourself when you work out or try to master a new instrument or discipline. Then you see how the principle is both utterly consistent and takes on varied forms in different areas. Then other principles emerge, such as how nature expands to fill all spaces, how energy is transferred between parts with little loss, how death brings new life, how patterns are based on repeated shapes which produce unpredictable results, and you see that everything finds a place but that the pattern of these places is regulated by principles like efficiency, completion, replicability, simplicity and balance. This process of learning to see culminates in noticing that nature tends toward beauty and variation; there are hawks for one niche, hummingbirds for another, and just like plants are layered from canopy to ground cover, species all have their place in a hierarchy that is both horizontal and vertical. One could spend a lifetime studying the forest just outside the back door – if you are so lucky – and never grow bored. It is an order of infinite dimension and wisdom.

From this, I realized how to think. Humans think in terms of solid rules and boundaries in which objects have a composite nature, meaning that they are consistent internally and have a will, when in fact every object is a manifestation of some other impulse. For example, rabbits are created by a confluence of food supply, space free from existing rabbits, good places to nest and relative lassitude of predators. The mechanism of their reproduction is known but it requires these forces to be in place, forming a pattern, before rabbits can appear. When one starts thinking along these lines, where a polycausal pattern is required before there can be a singular cause, and so we start seeing the world as a vast structure that consists of a transaction of localized order. There is a feedback loop between the big picture and the smallest detail, and from this, principles of organization are established. The everyday patterns, like the segments of a text file that are tokenized for compression, or the simplest distillation of a fractal, proliferate into a much broader appearance that does not visually reveal its underlying structure. When you start looking for this kind of structure, life becomes a texture of patterns and not a simple, slapstick-style interaction between actors.

You recently told me that, “We are designed to rise, but we can only do this through the spirit we have been given, which is that of a compassionate conqueror.” Modernity defines compassion as wholly different than its true meaning. So what is, then, a ‘compassionate conqueror’?

A compassionate conqueror knows that there is a hierarchy to life, both in the human world and beyond it, and that compassion is to give everything its place and understand its motivation, but to always act to assert the order instead of individual desires. This means that compassion is far different from our currently definition, which we might call “emotional melting,” or a tendency to not just understand another but to give oneself entirely to their quest. This type of self-negation is popular in dying societies because people have no belief in their own civilization and thus themselves, and so are casting around for external meaning that is entirely removed from their origins. In the clear understanding of compassion, it includes denying people their desires when those are out of place according to the order of life. In this sense, a compassionate conqueror subjugates the lesser so that greatness may rise above mediocrity, but does it without rancor or cruelty, merely a sense of clarity about the mission and the order that it supports. Almost no one understands that these days.

Altruism and pity feel good to us as humans. They spark chemical reactions in our brain that we can and do become addicted to, and I believe this addiction has been compounded by the internet, social media, etc., to such a degree that the Hive Mind can no longer tell the difference between compassion for the sake of human civilization and pity for the sake of a dopamine rush. What are your thoughts on this? Do you believe that the internet and social media are a real problem in and of themselves, or merely another catalyst in humanity’s history that drives him to insanity?

Strictly speaking, social media expands frequency of interaction and scope of possible interaction partners, but otherwise is socialization as normal. Facebook is just like your local hipster bar except that you can encounter hipsters worldwide and share warm watery Pabst with them. As a result, it makes sense to view social media as an amplification of what we already have. The fact is, as you have noted, that what is afflicting humanity is a combination of individualism and socializing, with the latter being distinguished by its ability to make the individual important through its assessment in the eyes of others. Thus we must mention Warhol’s fifteen minutes of fame, and note that social media democratizes this fame further, so that each user is competing for their five seconds of fame a day. Our fundamental illness is that the clever ego figures out how to manipulate other people into reflecting it in a certain way, and this bolsters the ego because it trusts those others. This create a co-dependency relationship of the type we see commonly throughout human history and across many societies. This reveals to us that the primary human failing is, as seen in The Odyssey and the story of the Garden of Eden, the ego; we mistake ourselves for the world because we are the lens through which we see the world, and when we socialized, we can validate this viewpoint in a group and cause a mob of people dedicated toward illusion. Social media just does this faster.

You’ve described your religious views as ‘perennial’ to myself and in interviews. I am a follower of Christ, the Christian Godhead, and the Biblical narrative. How different would you say that our viewpoints are?

The point of perennialism is that our viewpoints are more similar than different, but that esotericism also applies. That is, religious interpretations are a starting point, and beyond that gateway, the ability of individuals to understand what is going on varies widely. Perennialism says that all religions describe the same world, and should be viewed as witness statement rather than absolute truth, but it does not say that all religions are equal or that every interpretation of a religion is equal. There is one world, and many descriptions of it, and then our interpretations of those descriptions, which means that every person is at a different point on the path to knowledge, and the amount of knowledge they seek varies with how much they already know, and what they can accept. I view my beliefs as compatible with Christianity, but I realize that Christianity is fading out due to its liberalization and the fact that Europeans want a belief system that is not foreign at all. Still, I enjoy the old churches, hymns and rituals and think we should preserve them, even if we re-brand them as pagan temples. I also find the Bible to be a highly useful compendium of spiritual and practical knowledge, much like the Bhagavad-Gita.

Long before Modernity, Plato noted the existence of some kind of informational structure to our reality. As you and I have discussed, the realization of cause and effect leads to the realization that all of reality is pattern. The patterns matter more than the material. The more of particle physics ideas that I discover from a layman’s perspective, the more I can only agree with this. To tie this to the previous question, I believe that nothing in the book of Genesis disagrees with this assessment. The entire ‘Creation story,’ when looked at outside of religiosity, most especially when the original language is utilized to decipher the text, does not deny this but, in fact, upholds these ideas. The pattern was first entropy, and God moved this toward order. Do you feel that the Ancient Texts, not limited to the Bible for this interview, collide with the idea of our universe being pattern? If not, what other examples besides the Bible would you cite?

The Bible, properly understood, is a compilation of Greek, Hindu, Babylonian, Nordic, Jewish and Buddhist thought. In doing so, it references the explicitly pattern-based outlook of these ancient tribes, which in the case of Hindus, Greeks and Nords was something we usually call “transcendental idealism” or “Germanic idealism” in philosophy, which is the idea that:

It nevertheless seems safe to say that within modern philosophy there have been two fundamental conceptions of idealism:

  1. something mental (the mind, spirit, reason, will) is the ultimate foundation of all reality, or even exhaustive of reality, and
  2. although the existence of something independent of the mind is conceded, everything that we can know about this mind-independent “reality” is held to be so permeated by the creative, formative, or constructive activities of the mind (of some kind or other) that all claims to knowledge must be considered, in some sense, to be a form of self-knowledge.

Idealism in sense (1) may be called “metaphysical” or “ontological idealism”, while idealism in sense (2) may be called “formal” or “epistemological idealism”. The modern paradigm of idealism in sense (1) might be considered to be George Berkeley’s “immaterialism”, according to which all that exists are ideas and the minds, less than divine or divine, that have them. (Berkeley himself did not use the term “idealism”.) The fountainhead for idealism in sense (2) might be the position that Immanuel Kant asserted (if not clearly in the first edition of his Critique of Pure Reason (1781) then in his Prolegomena to Any Future Metaphysics (1783) and in the “Refutation of Idealism” in the second edition of the Critique) according to which idealism does “not concern the existence of things”, but asserts only that our “modes of representation” of them, above all space and time, are not “determinations that belong to things in themselves” but features of our own minds. Kant called his position “transcendental” and “critical” idealism, and it has also been called “formal” idealism.(https://plato.stanford.edu/entries/idealism/ )

The difference with our ancient forms is that they create a crossover between the two ideas above: they believed that the world operated like thought and idea, or a mind, but did not suggest that this mind was our own; this is a modern conceit. Kant made the clearest statement of this, and then Schopenhauer clarified it with his own analysis, but the basic point is that appearance is not reality, and as Plato tells us, there is a larger causal field at an informational level that is responsible for what we know of as reality.

Is this implied in the Bible? Implicitly so, at least, but like the definition above, it has been simplified to make the individual feel as if they are in control and are the focus of attention. This is a weakness of the distillation of these many chains of thought into the Bible; while it serves as a streamlining and channeling of the ancient knowledge from those many sources, by making it accessible in written form that is designed for mass comprehension, it also invites itself to be misinterpreted. This leads most to understand the Bible as suggesting a “dualistic” worldview where there are two worlds, the physical world and a metaphysical one.

This misses the monism of the ancients that claimed there was only one world but that the physical was a small part of this where the larger ideation manifested in physical form, perhaps as a matter of making it finite (no infinite loops). In my view, the Bible is not explicitly dualistic, but its use of ideas like “heaven” as both an afterlife and a place where angels war suggests a concept that most human minds will interpret as dualism. However, it seems to me that the stories of Job and Jonah are designed to suggest that in this other world, metaphysical and mythic forces are in motion that manifest in physical reality.

The death and resurrection of Jesus seems to me to be the type of more cinematic telling that a cantor might use to convey the idea that “The embodied soul is eternal in existence, indestructible and infinite; only the material body is factually perishable, therefore fight O Arjuna” (Bhagavad-Gita 2:18). The two main ideas we might take from that chapter are first that ideas are more important than matter, so it is important above all else for us to work to establish a pattern which is logical and transcendental in ourselves and in civilization, and second, that when we concern ourselves with death, we should realize that we as physical beings are manifestation of something more complex elsewhere. The fearlessness of Jesus facing the executioners and his return were designed as a visual representation of this idea, but I prefer the Hindu version because it combines the individual and civilization into one task, which is a fight for order and beauty.

Let’s move toward the political. To put the question in as blunt terms as possible, do you feel that President Donald Trump has a purpose for America? Even if he is no more than a bull in a corrupt D.C. china shop?

Slavoj Zizek called this one: Trump, like Reagan and the founding fathers of the United States, was really a centrist liberal which in these Leftist times we would call a “moderate” (https://www.theguardian.com/books/2016/apr/28/slavoj-zizek-donald-trump-is-really-a-centrist-liberal ). Trump likes making things work and idolizes Reagan and Kennedy, and so one can expect him to want a fiscally strong United States, to defeat foreign threats, and to re-assert social conservative values as a pragmatic hedge against the disasters brought on by the 1960s (briefly: divorce, libertinism, dropped reproduction rate, class warfare, ethnic conflict). His economic sanity and social conservative outlook will make him look “fascist” to liberals, and his lack of concern about affirmative action and social welfare programs will make him look Communist to traditional conservatives.

Even his opinions on Muslim immigration and sealing the borders are a mixture of pragmatism and business sense; we are flooding the labor pool and importing people who have different genetics and thus behaviors than us, which includes many acts that we consider to be violent crime but are common activities in the third world societies from which they originate. What we are seeing here is a conflict between pragmatists, ideologues – of both Left and Right – and realists. Trump is a pragmatist, which is a nice shift away from a Leftist ideologue like Barack Obama, but he is thankfully not a Rightist ideologue of the National Socialist or fundamentalist Christian variety, because both of those groups are crazy too.

However, where he falls short is that he is not a realist. A realist recognizes that the line between individual and civilization is thin, and that we individuals depend on a functional civilization entirely, so allowing ours to slide into the known pattern of decline and fall is pointless. With the arrival of democracy in the West, it was clear that we had entered the final stage; now the question is how to rebirth this civilization from within by taking the people who understand this need and how to make a functional civilization, and having them seize power and drive off the crazies. Trump is a small step to this; he is reversing the crazy mad dash toward full Communism that voters will pathologically pursue when given the chance, and leaving it to future realists to actually fix the problem of civilization decline from which all our other “issues” and “problems” emerge as mere symptoms.

We are currently seeing sedition, collusion, and traitorous acts by those defiant of Trump. For the most part, this seems a necessary revelation if America is ever going to rebuild itself—the Evil must be drawn out, defined, and shown to be what it is, despite that this causes much anxiety for John and Jane Q. Public. Many a Trump supporter believes that he himself will correct America’s course. Do you feel he can do such a thing?

If I had a wishlist for Trump, it would be that he would un-do the liberal social programs of the New Deal/Great Society variety and then remove civil rights law based on the obligation of the majority to subsidize minorities, including the civil rights act, Hart-Celler immigration act, affirmative action and agencies like the HUD which enforce diversity. Many hope he will do this through a libertarian-style dissolution of socialist programs of wealth transfer in general, and instead restore autonomy of the individual and freedom of association; this is one path that would be excellent and lead to further peeling back of dysfunctional liberal ideas. The real problem is that in both the EU and US, voters love their benefits, and they will always vote for these and let the next generation figure out how to pay for them, which is why governments in Europe and America are bankrupt and depending on imported third world labor to generate enough income and taxes to pay for these expanded pension and union-style programs.

Any steps he takes toward unraveling this system are great, but the real problem is that the system itself is the voters, and voters always prefer pleasant fictions to hard realities and so will adopt any loony socialist-style programs possible, which delights government as it allows it to grow and increase its power. We have to get out of this cycle, and the real opposition is in the voters, who are “conservatives” who like to make themselves look good to their friends by preaching lifting weights, working hard, going to church, being good family men and paying all those fat government taxes, but will never tackle the politically and socially difficult hard truths like the fact that socialism, diversity and all egalitarian programs not only do not work, but are parasitic and accelerate civilization decline.

When I talk about the necessity of overthrow and physical removal, the point is that the voters are what must be overthrown; government is a creation of their greed, solipsism, pretense and illogicality. No one wants to hear this because everyone wants to believe he is good and surrounded by good people, but what made Europe great was that we were not accepting of everyone and in fact were zealous about pushing out bad people. The future for Leftists involves physical removal per Hans-Herman Hoppe, although my version consists of putting them on cruise ships and sending them one-way to Brazil or North Africa.

What would you suggest are the major issues that America must admit to and face before any restoration is possible?

That humanism has failed: people are not good, and if we assume that we are good, we stop improving ourselves internally – a qualitative matter of adaptation, like Darwinism plus the way we improve our performance in sports or intellectual tasks through greater mental focus and organization – and thus turn into obese, bratty, selfish, greedy, pretentious, controlling, manipulative, dramatic, petty, passive-aggressive and angry people. We left behind Darwinian adaptation when our society became wealthy and it has crushed us from within, which apparently no one expected.

The changes we need are not all that radical, in a historical context. For the last thousand years or so, we have been piling layers of dysfunction on a type of civilization that worked, so we have to go back to that structure: aristocracy, caste, nationalism/culture-rule and some sense of purpose, which includes but is not limited to transcendental ideation leading to metaphysical concepts. We have to peel back the layers of the onion and discover the working core of civilization at the center, and then implement that. Yes, we will have to repatriate Others and deport Leftists and criminals, but that is the smallest part of the matter and is an act of compassion in itself. I favor repatriation with reparations, so that we can part friends with those who have lived among us.

Plato writes of a civilization cycle where societies begin with forward moving cognition, or acting toward excellence in all things, and then invert that because of infighting, such that the assume that whatever is profitable/popular must be excellent and in so doing, destroy the meaning of excellence. The final step in this cycle is tyranny, which Plato notes always comes out of democracy. What we are seeing now is what Paul Woodruff identified as tyranny: it is not a method, but a duplicate purpose, where the tyrant in public acts toward pleasant-sounding things, and in private moves toward profit and power for himself at the expense of others. Voters fit this pattern; we the People are the tyrant, and we need to be deposed.

Do you believe that before all is said and done, America will find more bloodshed in its streets? Revolution is the last thing that we need, in the sense of the term itself, but do you still believe that Civil War 2.0 will occur?

One way or another. Right now we are still in the “libertarian” stage that Plato identified, where the productive people are trying to get away from the drones using laws and economics. This will not work, obviously, because the herd will steal anything it can; the desire for people to simply run away to the suburbs, keep paying taxes to this Communist-lite government and hoping for the best is in fact the path to doom.

There will be less bloodshed now if we arrange a military coup or civil war based not on secession but domination of the coasts; at this point, if the American heartland cut off the blue areas from wealth and then attacked, they could drive the seething horde of Leftists from the country and start peeling that onion. If we do not do that, there will be bloodshed as this system continues to break down and our politicians do nothing but laugh at it, because they know that in democracy, those who try to solve hard problems are sacrificed first.

What do the sane then do when faced with this reality?

There is only one thing to do: find a place of stability, and then counter-attack. There is no escape from a dying civilization and the only way to fix it is to point it in a different direction and then remove all of those who favor the old direction. If we do not do this, our descendants are doomed and all that we work for will disappear in the winds of corruption, ineptitude and chaos that dying civilizations bring.

Fight! We need to unify most of the 5% of our population who are the natural leaders who do all of the hard thinking work. When that happens, the illusion of democracy as “good” will perish and we can move on to something functional, and from that point, begin the process of rebirthing Western Civilization. But this is war, and it is inherently extremist, since the old “middle class way” of just trying to escape to the suburbs has failed and will fail more violently in the future.

Brett, again, thank you for taking the time to answer these questions. I hope that you have enjoyed them as well.

It has been a blast! Thank you for sending them and our ongoing dialogue.

As Modernity Becomes More Mad, Humanity Willingly Dismantles the Wrong Thing– Itself

Theocracy, minus the all-important ‘Theo‘, is here. It takes many forms—each and all insane.

Climate science, social justice, anti-racism, acceptance of mental illness as normality, on and on the list goes, your new false gods demand your attention. They demand your fealty. They demand, demand, demand. This is all they are good for. This theocratic tyranny is leftist. It is manic and depressive, and it is mad as a hatter with a tinfoil hat chasing fireflies in a field believing that it chases aliens plotting humanity’s demise at every turn.

To deny the dogmatic tenets of these false gods is to be shamed. Endlessly. It is to be lectured. Endlessly. There is no escape from the constant chatter of these gods. And they are false gods—demons with malformed teeth and jaws that simply cannot stop clicking against themselves, ever vigilant over every little thing that could be a micro- or macro-aggression. These demons turn people, otherwise sensible and perhaps intelligent (perhaps) into the insane zombies that drive any sane person out of their mind. The Walking Dead is not a work of fiction in entirety, it just has the zombies wrong. These demons divide life, difficult enough as it is, into intersectionalities of madness, where every jot and tittle is offensive. Moral imperatives lurk around every bit of dust. Dust itself is likely some form of institutionalized oppression, dreamed up by the Horror of White Man.

Would that we could exorcise them all.

Humanity is being dismantled. Willingly. People say something truthful and wonder if they hurt someone. Or if they offended them. Men feel guilt for being men. Women feel guilt for being women. The aberrant and mentally ill feel no guilt for anything, they merely demand that the sane recognize their own twisted habits and choices as fine and dandy—moral, yet—and normal men and women go along with the charade as though they are somehow helping by dismantling themselves and every normal thing that they’ve ever held dear. Humanity believes that love is being an ally to the sick and ill, but rather than make any attempt to point out the actual sickness so that healing might begin, this twisted love simply encourages more of the behaviors that will further the real problems indefinitely.

It is not love. It is a dopamine-fed selfishness. A Hive mind. What is popular now is disgusting and vile. The sane know this. The weak but sane also know this, but choose to join the Hive, because the herd offers a backhanded protection. Stay within it, follow the rules of the demon gods, and find success. This is understandable. There is no reason to despise those who cannot go against the flow. There is only being strong as individuals, so that the sane but weak might take heart in seeing others who believe the same as they stand up, against the flow, and welcome the disasters that come to them, because they know that what they believe is far more important than escalating a ladder in an office, or courting fame.

To read or watch the news today is to see the dismantling of humanity in real time. Scientism, social scientism, racial scientism, all of these things that people believe have merit are empty vessels—the only thing to be found within them are the pointless but maddening dogmatic tenets of the gods of the Hive mind. These ideas carry no weight. They carry with them madness.

Humanity is dumbed down to the point that it cannot recognize what is false when what it false stands before it, all but declaring that it is not real. So humanity asks ridiculous, circular questions that do nothing. Those whom we call educated ponder that milk is a product of white supremacy. Our educated make claims that yoga pants or form fitting clothes are mucking up our oceans, bodies of water so vast that they cover our entire planet, yet fibers from asspants are ruining them. Recently, Vice President Pence noted that he would not eat dinner alone with a woman who was not his wife. Rather than noting the prudence and common sense of this approach, ‘educated’ people cried out in shrill voices that his belief hurt women.

How does one even begin to address the stupidity of our Modernity? The pieces of it all fly around too fast, there is no way to keep up with the onslaught of moronic ideas that bombard us moment to moment.

Worse, those who should understand the breadth, width, and depth of the coming judgment humanity must face have no spine. Conservatives, Republicans, Libertarians—all manner of men and women who ought to (and do) know better continue spouting their pabulum, craving like addicts some lost ideal of How Things Could Be. This is as selfish as the form of ‘love’ that modern humanity has espoused. What they want is comfort. Votes. These men and women desire, above all else, to be liked. To receive attaboys, retweets, votes, favorable comments, notoriety on Talking Head Tv Shows, and all the things that go along with the long-dead American Dream that they believe that somehow being bi-partisan and nice will resurrect.

Lazarus would have laid dead in his grave had Yeshua used the same tactics, ‘reaching across the aisle’ to the hand of Death, getting consensus opinions on how or when he should raise up Lazarus, and wondering if in any way his act might be considered racist or hurt the feelings of someone whose loved one He did not raise that day. Thankfully, for Lazarus and kin, Yeshua used His authority, spoke clearly and plainly, and demanded that Death hand over that which He rightfully had ownership.

While the leftist (even a bright, talented one such a Brett Easton Ellis) believes that his system holds within it the roots of compassion, openness, tolerance, et al., it is the philosophy of the right, conservatism, etc., that has within it time-tested, perennial systems that work. Time and again, these systems work. But like any system, the right can be gamed by con-men and has been for decades, so that now we are at a point that far too many who lean left do not see conservatives or Republicans—they see Rightwing ‘fascists’ who only want to take, take, take. They see the spineless Paul Ryans of the right, or the Merovingian Frat Boys like George W. Bush.

In other words, they see hollow men. And as such the belief systems of the right and conservatism are anathema. Is this because these systems espouse cruelty? Do they really take and never give? Hardly. It simply rightfully disgusts the person leaning left to see those who claim the high ground act out as cowards, turncoats, and hypocrites. The do-nothings of the right continue hammering out several-thousand word op-ed nonsense by the boatload lamenting the breakup of the Republican party, modern conservatism, etc., and often blame The Great Orange One in the Oval Office. They lecture like schoolmarms, harangue and chastise those who would dare understand that these things need to be broken, cracked in half, exposed, and rebuilt.

And so many on the right read them or listen to them, clucking along like chickens in a hen house.

Thus our madness of Modernity is complete, as no side can be counted on for anything, other than posturing and the ever-popular virtue signalling. While dismantling itself, humanity argues with itself from the two sides. Any comment thread on any political or social op-ed today points this out, as people name-call, insult, and snark their way toward resolving nothing and less.

And no man needs nothing.

That which cannot continue forever will not, and thus our system needs to be brought down. This is not anarchy. A broken bone must be reset. A body must undergo horrible, painful treatments to rid itself of cancer. The sane must revolt against the insane, and stand strong, no matter the consequences. Those who care a whit about civilization have to come to terms with the fact that our Dream was a nightmare all along, and that we will continue in our misery until that nightmare is fully exposed, no matter how uncomfortable this act will be. The insane control the narrative, thus that narrative should be ignored entirely, and the sane should walk forward, knowing that the high ground is not given to them.

It is taken.

Interview With W. Boone Hedgepeth

If you wanted to meet an interesting human being, today’s your lucky day! Today, we have an interview with W. Boone Hedgepeth, author of Wild Willful Heart, a book you’ll want to read to believe.

The first time I read Wild Willful Heart, it was something akin to being thrown into the middle of a literary war zone; the immediate challenge being to accept the current surroundings as being precisely what you’d built for the reader. The experience of reading the book was personal, sometimes almost visceral, as you pulled no punches, and the whole wagon-train runs full speed, no brake. How difficult was it to put so much of yourself out there and basically dare the reader to believe you?

Real life is a bit of a meat grinder at times. Around eighteen years old, it was prescient when I started collecting these stories of incredible supernatural events in a shoe box. I can remember laughing about it, knowing that there was much more to come. It would have been a betrayal of that premonition to not tell the tales as they happened. As a journalism student, I knew that in great stories the self has to be turned wrong side out and back for it to be worth a damn. That is always a terrifying decision. In that process I came to realize that I no longer cared what people thought of me as a whole, and that I needed to look at how many millions of suffering people would benefit. You can’t please everyone, though adults need to read this iconoclastic work for the soul shift alone. The right people will believe the story because it was written for them, the rest will have it speak in a subconscious and highly beneficial manner that will haunt them forever. In a way not planned, it is a profound survival manual all on the spiritual, physical, emotional and mental planes at once.

As you put the whole story together over time, were there ever moments when you questioned whether or not to put it all out there?

Many times over the years, I debated whether or not to publish. This time it happened just a week before print. I had three awful seconds of doubt, but certain apex political and cultural conditions in America made me realize it was now or never. I knew people needed this information for events coming up.

When you look back on the events in this book now, events of your own life, is there a sense that it is all surreal? That perhaps the Boone in that wild tale is someone you know that you were once, but the identity feels more like a distant memory?

Sure it all seems a bit strange to me. Imagine having to transcend these events to be able to work or seem normal to others. It was strange that one day I was faced with an epic cliffhanger and the next I was back in the unreal world working the day job. Oh and that Boone of the story is very much alive in the present, just older, happier, wiser and more domesticated by choice.

 What does it feel like today, looking back at a life not all that dissimilar to Chris Carter’s Fox Mulder?

Love some X-Files and Mulder! Actually, I was far more like Frank Black in the show Millennium, if you recall that one. I always had this brooding edge to me as I was always on guard against evil or some kind of drama appearing. Anyway, today is wonderful and likely tomorrow, I know to always pray and project good things into the future, yet I am ever vigilant since I know things can change rapidly as the Lord wills. Things are good because we make them good, and when they are flowing well we must embrace it, feel it, take it all into the soul. It may be what gets you through the next life changing event. Looking back, I am happy to have survived it all, and very grateful to God for the grace!  

Without giving away too much of Wild Willful Heart, you’ve had many experiences with the spiritual world. How has this informed your view of the physical world around you?

There are spirits all around us every day and night. I feel, sense and sometimes see them. I always have, and have had to get used to it. It causes one to walk in some degree of caution and be very selective of people, situations, and places. It disturbs me greatly that many have no idea, or have a flippant attitude about such matters. If people knew—they would ALL be Christians. The bad news is that over the years of maturity I have seen the world move toward occultism in many forms, and at least half of America is suspect of having negative spiritual influences in their lives, whether pagan or not. The good news is that many are waking up and coming back to grassroots Christianity.    

How do you treat the demonic realm these days? Do such things unnerve you, or do you take them head-on, knowing what you know and have experienced?

That is never anything to play with or underestimate. I fashion my existence around prayer and life affirming rule of law activities like work, cooking, shopping, restauranting and reading the Bible. I read the Bible every night before bed, as it clears the mind and places the dream state in the hands of the angelic and revelatory. I call Michael the archangel into the property. Everyone should do the same, everyone.

Best I can find, every single ideology of Paganism returns to Babylon. Trace it however you like, the common thread always returns to that Great City of Man. In your own travels with the esoteric, what are your thoughts here?

Oh it is a real herd think out there being pushed through marketing of every type. Babylon is anything that can be embraced or purchased that is antithetical to God and biblical values, anything you don’t need. Things designed to specifically remove you from God. It also comes with the idea that acquiring more and more material things make you a better pioneer of your own destiny, and that special world only you can create, making each one of us the next mini-Nimrod of cool to be emulated by the average, the envious, and the hot chicks alike. It is why so many people are miserable—the car, the vacation, the house they bought to be seen of men has not filled the empty hole in their soul. They miss the point that one of the big secrets to a great life is to not run with the pack, and to get rid of everything you simply do not need. You are thus left with only noteworthy and essential things, living within your means. Everything that modern society is desperate for is completed in a relationship with God, Jesus, and the Holy Ghost.

Suppose there might be a devout Mormon in our audience today reading this interview. What would you say to this person, Boone?

I would tell them to look at how liberal the church is becoming (they will know what I mean). I would also tell them to look at the influence of the Rothschilds, the Rockefellers and the Charles T. Russell influence in the church. I would remind them of the Mormon bomber story of the 1980s, and how supposedly infallible leaders were duped by forged documents. I would ask them to do an honest outside the church investigation into the theft of the Solomon Spalding manuscript. I would tell them to investigate the freemasonry aspects of their temple rituals with a multiplicity of easily accessible outside sources. Their church is not telling the truth.

What was it that finally drove you away from the Church of Latter Day Saints?

There were many reasons to leave, but first you have to open your eyes to the lies around the history of the church. That should be enough for anyone. Everyone needs to realize is that the same can be applied to virtually any so-called organized religion, because most of them have either been founded, or later infiltrated by corrupt leaders long ago.

Were you all that surprised when, in your first Vision Quest, you were given a vision of a Globalist Order that seeks to control the populous of humanity?

That was a real aha moment! It did surprise me quite a bit, but made perfect sense. At 33 years of age, I had been questioning since childhood how most people in positions of power were pure smoke and mirrors, just like the Wizard of Oz. I studied history at one of the best universities in America, and found more a few inconsistencies in the actions of key leaders and their plans for America, and the rest of the world. People have to stop being slaves to bogus individuals of wealth and power, those that are privileged and build nothing themselves.

What did your time with the Church of Latter Day Saints, as well as your time with American Indians, give you in terms of how you see this world we inhabit?

The Mormons want to strip down your individuality to be a slave to the beehive community. I learned to never be a joiner of any club or group ever again, especially an organized religion. It made me intrinsically aware of the cult of personality in big organizations and the corporate rah-rah people. In dealing with them, one realizes the great lengths to be undertaken to break their programming. I can smell an institutional thinker a mile off now, and can make the quick decisions to either show them the hand, or shatter their illusions. I did learn from the Mormons, that we have to apply hard discipline to certain aspects of life to achieve success. I have become a person of hard tack, have always been honest, and my world is a place of rule of law. I do it to be different than most other Americans, which I often find disheveled, unfulfilled, passive aggressive and childish, and this especially best applies to the younger generations now. The whole American Indian fundamentalism thing was quite different. I had related to the natural earthiness of the Indians from my youth, had some of the blood in me, as well as stories in the family. At 30 years of age I had to start to understand the details. It was an amazing journey for me, and something I did completely alone, which was best. The Indian years gave me a deep understanding of nature and what its healing connection to man. I also learned the dangers. This life period was far more beneficial to me than the Mormon times. The Indians operate in a world of dark and light spirits that is incredibly dangerous, and I saw that it was their way of things. Contrary to what people think, most medicine people are not entirely in control of their interactions with these wanton spirits. I saw things so frightening that most folks would just keel. Many of those stories did not make the book. One thing I know, Christ protected me the whole time, it was a quantifiable reality that was profound. I know this world is full of spirits both good and bad that feed on our shortcomings and our strengths. You better be prayerful and strong.

This Western World we inhabit is so packed to the gills with pseudo-intellectual pabulum, information without context, and nonsense that John and Jane Q. Public find little recourse but to panic most days. Having experienced what you have, what would you say here?

The panic they experience is in direct correlation to how they react to things like children, and whether or not they have a personal relationship with Christ. Once you have that spiritual connection, in any crisis stay calm, breathe, think, concentrate and then act quickly. If you are not a Christian, become a grassroots variety, for me that means worshiping God and Christ from home as a base and outward to the world. Read the Bible every day and see what happens to your life. Pray constantly for protection and good will in your circle of life. If they are unteachable, get all the losers out of your life that don’t understand anything of real consequence. Weigh everyone, every little thing in your life in the balance, and then simplify your existence.

Our Western Culture is now filled with many weak people who would as soon accept the guilt and shame heaped on them by our politically-correct world rather than stand up to any of the charade. Men have become weak, lacking the fortitude to simply be what they are, which is men. Did these aspects of our current culture inform Wild Willful Heart?

Very little of this climate of political correctness was or is part of my upbringing. I was raised by an Army drill instructor/entrepreneur that became a millionaire twice. I know what a badass real man is supposed to be like. This PC nonsense was promoted in the schools after I left. All I can say is that many men in this country are going to have to find some fortitude pretty quick for events coming up fast.

Conformity is the name of the game in America and the West. But this is not healthy, nor is it what the heart within us desires. What does that human heart desire, Boone?

To conform is to be the cuckolded milquetoast. People engage in superfluous activities of great expense and financial burden to themselves and their families, seeking some miracle of happiness. When what they are predominantly seeking, is a connection to the love of God. The ability to love God supplants the terror of God. The love from God is a glowing reassurance that no matter what happens, life has peace in the storms, coupled with an eternity of grace and beauty. All free gifts to the willing.

In our comfort zone culture, we want everything right now, with as little effort as possible. But this is not Reality, and so long as we try taking this road, we fail. Where does true change in our lives resonate from? I believe it begins at the moment that we see ourselves as we truly are, and from then on desire change. How about you?

Nothing happens without work. Most people are miserable because they are in the wrong field of work. I agree with you, until you know your strengths and weaknesses, until you have met the true self and come to terms with that, everything will continue as struggle. It could continue anyway, but you’ll certainly have better knowledge to deal. Once you understand who you are, you can find what you are meant to be doing, to fund your life more efficiently.

Many in our Western Culture are without hope. Where do you find hope in this mad society that we live within?

Jesus Christ. Try Him, you’ll like Him. 

You and me both believe in the so-called Angelic View of Genesis 6, as well as being proponents of the Book of Enoch. How did you arrive at the conclusion that this is the correct view of the Scriptures?

In the mid-90s, I got my first home computer and began doing nightly Bible research. I ran across some studies on the subject and became fascinated. One day, I was standing outside a book store in Naples, Florida, and the Holy Ghost told me to go inside and buy a copy. So I went inside, and sure enough they had one copy. So right off the bat I acquired the book by supernatural means. Next, I learned that in the historical sense, it was found a third time in the late 1940s, at the Qumran caves, showing that the Essenes revered the book in early New Testament times.

When you go over the events of your life, including the things that you saw in your Vision Quests, how does Genesis 6, as well as the Book of Enoch, intertwine those memories?

In many ways. The beast I ran across on vision quest, as depicted in Wild Willful Heart is just one story. There were incidents in childhood as well. These demons are hunters of men’s souls, and they are out stalking all humans.

I am of the belief that the Angelic View of Genesis 6, as well as an understanding of the events of the Book of Enoch, are necessary in many ways toward understanding both Old and New Testament Hebrew prophecy. What are your thoughts?

God warned the Israelites about the curses that come outside of serving Him. They were not to accept false gods or the religion of the Baals, or pass their children through the fires to Molech. Both before and since the sacrifice of Christ for all mankind’s sins, any religion outside of Christianity is Baal worship. These religions have the god of forces, or demonic demi-gods of the pre-flood that answer prayers. They make many persons outside of Christianity believe they are connecting to God, when they are not. It is that simple. Right now, there is an incredible scale of warfare between angels and demons in the heavenlies. Many of the strange sky sounds being heard worldwide is this warfare. Huge terrestrial events are happening on earth, with more to come very soon. People have to wake up, and get on the right team.

If we are, in fact, within the realm of the End Times, what should the Christian who believes beyond dogmatic Churchian ideas do in order to prepare for the days ahead?

We have been in the last days for 2,000 years, and the Bible makes that plain in the New Testament. Christ is to return to earth right after those years. I have been in business all my life and people are the worst I have ever seen them in the last couple of years. It is hard to trust anyone. As we know there are fires and floods across the nation like never before. We have a communist revolution brewing under the nose of a sitting president. Right now, everyone of right mind should be supporting Trump, such as he is, because God put him in office as a temporary reprieve from the new world order Babylonian state for Americans, and the whole world. Remember, I make it clear in Wild Willful Heart that God uses what and who He has on hand to achieve his purposes! There was no one else to stand in the gap against pure evil, but Trump. God has given us a brief break from the deep shadow government (the demi-god worshiping pedophile/alternative lifestyle totalitarian system), to give people time to embrace Christ, clean up their lives before the rapture and a very hellish tribulation period. This is a great time for all liberals to look in the mirror knowing they voted for hell, get over their shock of what they have done, and embrace Christ!

Within the pages of your fascinating book, Wild Willful Heart, I found an adventure. One that challenged me and changed me for the better. I appreciate you spending this time with me, Boone, and I hope that your work continues beyond this adventurous first book. Thank you for taking the time to answer these questions.

Thank you for your appreciation of Wild Willful Heart, I know that those that make the time to read it will be empowered beyond their wildest expectations!

Modernity is Insane and Mostly a Bunch of Scared Chickens

Leftists, which have successfully shaped the insane narrative that we are all forced to deal with now, wish to expose you. They wish to insult you. They wish to shut you down.

To combat the leftists on their own terms is to immediately lose the battle.

In any fight, one must assess their opponent and without pride or arrogance determine the best method with which to fight said opponent. If one is faced with an obstacle that is larger than them, more skilled in that particular form of combat than them, then it is paramount to make the decision to utilize what is called a ‘force equalizer.’ Think of an ashtray to the temple against a 6’4″ MMA fighter with a bad attitude. Attempting to fight this man on his own terms is a path to pain and perhaps being admitted to a local hospital. You’ll need more than a good punch, you’ll need a strategy, in real time, to deal with the situation

In terms of our current Modernity, peer pressure and desires to be liked must be dismissed in order to facilitate that force equalizer. We live in a fake, hivemind culture. This culture rails against ‘shame’ when it comes to adhering to normality, morality, and overall societal good. It has flipped the notion of shame as such that to stand outside of this hivemind of egalitarian diversity is an act in and of itself that must be shamed. Do you believe that ‘transgender’ people suffer from very real mental issues?

Prepare to be assaulted by shame from the hivemind.

The amount of hivemind fallacies that, to them, require shaming, are endless. To fight them all head on using their own tactics is certain to find you losing the battle. Addressing these issues from the standpoint of this modern hivemind will surely lead quickly to defeat. The only defense is a mind that is prepared and strong enough to dismiss the notion of being liked, or giving two shits or a damn about what others think of us.

Once the sane person understands that Modernity and its narrative is insane, this process becomes much easier. Though this site enjoys targeting leftists, the fact is that many on the right are just as insane as the devoted leftists. Many on the modern right are their own worst enemy, and rightly so, as they have succumbed to peer pressure and status, or turning real issues like forced diversity into strawmen, and, in the case of many right leaning politicians, mere votes. Power often corrupts when placed in the wrong hands, and most of the rightwing, Republican establishment verifies this for us on a nearly day to day basis. Rhetoric from these politicians and pundits most often results in pathetic compromise because these people want to be liked, and they want votes or hits on their op-eds, the end result being the last thing on their minds. They are not, and it seems may not ever be, ready for the real battle that has presented itself in the demise of Western Culture.

Unlike Stark, they are not tired of the ‘liberal agenda’ but embrace it as a path to being liked, being voted back into office, or enjoying the dopamine rush of finding their own compromising and cowardly op-eds and appearances on talking head news shows garnering attention. So few of them have a real heart for the mission at hand, which includes their own demise if necessary to further a useful and bold agenda for Western Civilization on the whole. Peer pressure and materialism have utterly blinded them to their own purposes.

At the end of the day, how much do the thoughts of our peers affect our daily lives, or our own purposes? Well, first, we must define our own purpose beyond solipsistic notions of being accepted into the hivemind. Without that purpose, we are lost and being disliked or castigated has a profound effect on the mind. Once we have found our purpose, then we are able to determine our own force equalizers, and having done so, we can move forward with determination and a heart for our mission, whatever that mission is, no matter the pushback. We can even learn to enjoy pushback and insults, as we begin to understand that friction is one of the driving forces of our reality. Without friction, we could not even stand up. If we are receiving nothing but attaboys and praise for our thoughts, the likelihood of those thoughts having any impact on the world around us is minimal at best, at worst (and more likely) inert and pointless.

Modernity is insane, and has more in common with high school thinking than reality. Popularity in high school was most often due to luck, not guts, and so our Modernity is defined. The insanity that we endure every day is weak and gutless; it has little to no concern about the longterm health of our society but, instead, centers around our own solipsistic notions of caring what others think, and desiring to be liked.

When we do not care what others think, we are ready. But so few of us in this insane Modernity are ready.

We need more Stark-like chutzpah, to say the very least.
